    Transient rapamycin treatment can increase lifespan and healthspan in middle-aged mice

    Alessandro Bitto et al.
    Three months treatment with the drug rapamycin increases lifespan, alters cancer prevalence, remodels the microbiome, and improves functional measures of health in middle aged mice in a dose- and sex-dependent manner.

    Alleviation of neuronal energy deficiency by mTOR inhibition as a treatment for mitochondria-related neurodegeneration

    Xinde Zheng et al.
    Rapamycin treatment inhibits mTOR activity and preserves ATP levels in neurons derived from induced pluripotent stem cells from a maternally inherited Leigh syndrome patient.

    TOR Signaling: A central role for a region in the middle

    Edward Stuttfeld et al.
    A domain called the 'Conserved region in the middle' is responsible for target recognition in the TORC2 complex in fission yeast and the mTORC2 complex in mammals.

    Ragulator and GATOR1 complexes promote fission yeast growth by attenuating TOR complex 1 through Rag GTPases

    Kim Hou Chia et al.
    The Rag-family GTPases, known activators of TOR complex 1 (TORC1), also function as attenuator that prevents deregulated hyperactivation of TORC1 signaling.

    A novel sphingolipid-TORC1 pathway critically promotes postembryonic development in Caenorhabditis elegans

    Huanhu Zhu et al.
    A lipid acts to promote the development of nematode worm larvae through activation of an enzyme complex called TORC1.

    Nutritional control of body size through FoxO-Ultraspiracle mediated ecdysone biosynthesis

    Takashi Koyama et al.
    In Drosophila melanogaster, nutrition controls body size by acting through the Forkhead Box class O (FoxO)/Ultraspiracle complex to regulate nutrition-sensitive ecdysone biosynthesis, thereby controlling the switch to stop growth.

    Substrate specificity of TOR complex 2 is determined by a ubiquitin-fold domain of the Sin1 subunit

    Hisashi Tatebe et al.
    Sin1, a regulatory subunit of TOR protein kinase, has an evolutionarily conserved domain that specifically binds and recruits substrate for phosphorylation, and may represent a potential target for anti-cancer drugs.

    Snf1/AMPK promotes the formation of Kog1/Raptor-bodies to increase the activation threshold of TORC1 in budding yeast

    James E Hughes Hallett et al.
    The key Target of Rapamycin Complex (TORC1) component Kog1 moves into bodies during glucose starvation to limit reactivation of the complex.

    The yeast H+-ATPase Pma1 promotes Rag/Gtr-dependent TORC1 activation in response to H+-coupled nutrient uptake

    Elie Saliba et al.
    The H+ influx coupled to nutrient uptake and the plasma membrane H+-ATPase are central actors of the activation of target of rapamycin complex 1 (TORC1) in budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae..

    Architecture of the human mTORC2 core complex

    Edward Stuttfeld et al.
    The structure of the mammalian target of rapamycin complex 2 (mTORC2) reveals the architecture of the complex and explains the structural basis of rapamycin insensitivity.
